Captured on Video: DA During a traffic check, Sandra Doorley disobeys police commands.

Monroe County District  DA During a traffic Attorney Sandra Dooley said to D&C writer Gary Craig in a story that ran Friday morning in the Democrat and Chronicle that she had a tense relationship with a Webster police officer when they pulled her over for speeding on Monday.

The Webster Police Department made video from the body-worn camera of responding officers, including Cameron Crisafulli, available on Friday afternoon in response to a Freedom of Information Law request.

It depicts a very stressful conversation in which Dooley wanders in and out of her garage and, at one point, enters her home on Webster’s Fallen Leaf Terrace, where the stop ended, yelling at Officer Crisafulli and refusing to obey his directions.

Dooley, having just cursed at Crisafulli, then says, “I don’t know why you’re acting like this toward me,” mentioning that she ought to have pulled over on Phillips Road when the policeman attempted to pull her over at 5:30 p.m. with his emergency lights on.

Dooley didn’t stop; instead, she told Craig that there was less traffic at her home, which was located in a development off of Phillips Road, around half a mile distant.

In the video, woman is heard becoming irate as Crisafulli questions her about why she didn’t stop, responding, “Because I didn’t feel like stopping on Phillips Road at 5:30.”

She said to Craig that while Crisafulli was following her, she had called Webster Police Chief Dennis Kuhlmeier from her automobile.

She stated that since she did not stop right away, she wanted the chief to identify herself to the officer so that he would know there was no chance of his being in danger following the stop.

“Could you please tell him to leave me alone?” she asks Kuhlmeier during a heated exchange with Crisafulli that is caught on camera.

Dooley once asks Crisafulli how she could have known it was him and not someone else who was attempting to pull her over.

Since “I was right behind you,” he claims.

He asks, “What is that you’re so against what I’m doing?” while the dispute carries on. I’m carrying out my duties. Do you claim to be a DA?

As she responds, “I’m the DA. I am Monroe County’s DA.

“I comprehend that,” replies Crisafulli, who subsequently requests the arrival of a supervisor at the location. You don’t, however, have the right to drive a 55 in a 35.

Dooley asks Crisafulli if he is aware of the situation she has been facing all day, to which she replies, “Three murders in the city of Rochester.”

Do you think I would really care if I were to go 20 miles over the speed limit, she asks?

Towards the end of the 26-minute body-cam video from Crisafulli, Dooley takes the traffic penalty and appears to be more composed.

“By 1:00 PM (Tuesday), I pled guilty and sent the ticket to the Webster Town Court because I believe in accepting responsibility for my actions and had no intention of using my position to receive a benefit,” she stated in a statement released on Thursday. Nobody is above the law, not even your district attorney; this includes traffic laws.
